Well, for us early era types, the Yellow Dog Story does get old, as does the LOUD version of "my dog has no nose"...if he just had better jokes! I love hearing him talk about Godzilla and such...Really love Jerry talking about the physics of the broadcast at Harding in 71.

But, you should look up the LLRain hatefest we had some time back...join the club!

As Tell says better than I tried, the stage banter is enjoyable, but Bobby's jokes are just bad and repetitive. If you listen to many late 60's - very early 70's concerts the repetition of Yellow Dog in particular just grates on you...or at least on me. I remember the joke making the rounds when I was in high school (68-72) and just wish Bobby picked something more enjoyable to go with.

To each his/her own. I guess I would have rather heard Alligator than heard about an alligator.
